Finding Space for Your Soul
We all need spaces that rest our bodies, slow our minds, and allow our souls to expand.

Space for Your Soul.
Where does your soul breathe? The space where your shoulders drop, you are not thinking of the next things, the emotions show up, and your lungs expand and rest.
Maybe it is in one of these places:
- The outdoors
- Conversation with friends
- Good food
- A cleaned house
- Slowing down
- Being with animals
- Spiritual Direction
- Exploring art
- Intimacy with your spouse
Where does your soul breathe?
Have you had these spaces lately?
We all need these spaces that rest our bodies, slow our minds, allow our emotions to show up, and our souls to expand. And they are different for different people and in various seasons. But, we all need them.
What might it take to have these spaces?
What choices do you have in front of you to choose this space?
My space of choice is my front yard. A huge oak tree provides a spacious and secure canopy. I love this tree and sit under it regularly. My soul breathes here.
I also love a cleaned house. We have made a way to budget a once-a-month cleaning team for our home and I never thought the service and gift of a cleaned home would make space for my soul. But it does.
Where does your soul breathe? And what will you do to make space for it?
